"Well, you probably have some insight on that but I think as long as the game is good, whether it's a new IP or not, if the game is good, it gets a good review and it’s marketed properly people will want to look at it," said Roby.
"Specifically now, because it’s been a few years where we’ve only got sequels of sequels of sequels of sequels. I think people are getting tired of just playing the same thing over and over."
"So I hope that they’re going to try Dishonored for the fact that it’s trying to do something a little different that those other games."
Roby suggested players are getting bored with similar games, hinting that the industry needs to spice things up.
"You look at the line-up for Christmas this year and it's like something number six, something number five, something number seven. I really think people are starving for something new. Something new in terms of universe. Something new in terms of gameplay. Something new in terms of visuals."
Dishonored is readying itself for an October 9th release in North America, 11th in Australia and 12th in Europe.
